About Me

SHOWREEL

Communicating great ideas through film and video.

Who am I?

I’m a film fanatic – I love what I do. I bring a cinematic edge to the projects I work on, not just because it engages the audience more effectively, but because its a lot more fun to work on. Being an independent filmmaker gives me the freedom to choose the projects I believe in… brands and ideas that positively impact our world. I have a knack for creating emotive narratives that motivate new ways of thinking and doing.  I’m a creative that’s produced countless film and video productions over the years, so I also have an eye for numbers and organization. I’m a team player with access to top crews and production teams for jobs that require it. 

TECHNICAL BACKGROUND

Lessons critical to success can only be learned through experience. I’ve got nearly two decades of professional experience on set and in the editing room. My deep understanding of camera tech means that I can give high production values at affordable rates.  I’ve conducted countless interviews over the years, with luminaries like Annie Lennox,  Francois Pienaar, and Dylan Lewis. Some of the brands I’ve worked with include Kelloggs, Panasonic and The Weather Channel. Awards: TVC’s:  Silver Lourie (Cell-C “Subtitles”, editor); Vuka (Best Use of Humor, editor); Documentary: “Ruk en Riel”, Best Documentary Series (editor & camera).
